On March 21st 2014, an important meeting of the GlobalDiagnostiX Alliance took place at the EPFL with teams' presentations and workshops. The main outcome of this meeting is a joint action plan to achieve a prototype by the end of 2014.
This challenging objective will be a major step towards the realization of the vision of all the partners that collaborate together within the Alliance.
The goal is to build a fully functional prototype as a proof of concept, resulting from a cost / performance / durability optimization. In parallel, a mockup will be assembled in Cameroon where usability tests and workshops will be conducted with key stakeholders. In addition to the mechanical and software features, the innovative power supply will be tested on the ground.
